    Abbreviations

    Not sure if this is where this question goes but I will ask anyway:
    What are the meanings of the abbreviations used at times on people's posts?

    DH
    LOML
    DW

    are the few that I see at times. Is it an IM thing and I'm just not in the loop or are they abbreviations relative to TFP users?

    Any others that folks use on a regular basis would be appreciated so that I can do a better job of comprehending what is being written/said. Thanks TFP'rs.

    Re: Abbreviations

    This link gives a good summary of the acronyms most commonly found on Internet posts or used in texting.

    DH = darling (or dear) husband
    LOML = light (or love) of my life
    DW = darling (or dear) wife

    That link doesn't have everything. I've seen FIL on this forum for father-in-law and I'm sure there are other acronyms as well. It's not a TFP thing, however.

    I've see the full gamut of family relations, DH/DW/DD/DS as well as FIL/MIL/SIL/DIL.

    I see ETA sometimes, but it clearly doesn't mean Estimated Time of Arrival ??

    And of course, BBB (some of these acronyms came from The PoolForum).

    I asked the same question about ETA couple years ago. ETA = Edited To Add

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    YMMV = Your mileage may vary.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
